4.5 Out of 5 Stars (Based on 27 reviews)
I have a mix of 6 wyandottes silver and buff laced and have won in 3 shows this year. They look great and are easy to handle, the only problem as far as I am concerned is the egg production. They are great breed and I would recommend them to everyone.

I got 3 silver laced in September, and despite being fabulously big and good looking, have not started to lay.... Breeder wasn't quite sure hatch date, so maybe very slow developers or it started getting dark early, which has pushed forward laying till next spring.
Anyway, they are bottom of pecking order (have Rhodie, cream legbar and 2 light sussex) but they have integrated and settled in well. A bit daft. Make sweet low sound, and are delightful to watch.
Like to fly! Even though they are bigger and fatter than the others.
One of my best lookers. I bought her a a single bird to replace a Wyandotte cockerel that I had to find a new home. on reflection I should have bought 2 as on her own she didn't fair too good which made her nervous, a year later and she has settled nicely although at the bottom of the pecking order. I have to look out for her to make sure she gets her fair share of the treats.
I guess her nervous disposition accounts for her poor egg laying production but, I couldn't care less has she is such a nice bird to own, strutting around the garden. She is the sort of bird you just like to look after, like a scared little kid in the playground running from bullys
I have two of these bantams. They are poor layers and are very feisty due to coming from a commercial farm. They are beautiful though which kind of makes up for it. Not for those looking for eggs.
Just bought a trio of silver laced and have been amazed how tame they have become in a very short time .Cockeral is quiet and very docile hens also .So impressed I'm looking to get more
I love this breed! We have one, Her name is Sylvia. She is not to wild and not to tame which is really nice!

Have kept Dottes for over four years. They are an absolute delight to own. Great fun and easy on the allotment.
The only minus as far as I am concerned is that they go broody at the drop of a hat. However this is far outweighed by the pleasure they give in other ways.
We have just bought 6 Wyandotte bantams. No previous experience of chickens but these little girls are fab. Kids have spend hours looking after them. Tv not even switched on! Plenty of eggs, lovely looking and easy to look after.
Having kept Welsummer, Warrens, Sussex and Dutch Bantam as well as my flock of Partridge Wyandotte bantams, I can honestly say these are the most pleasurable little chucks you could wish for. They busy themselves all day picking at the grass and whilst the Warrens are friendlier, they don't have the same presence of the stately little Wyandotte. If you're after a few eggs but mainly something easy to look after (and pretty to look at), you've found it in the Wyandotte.

I have kept many chicks over the years but my silver laced Wyandottes are fantastic! I would highly recommend!
